Previous studies with magneto encephalographic (MEG) recordings in patients with various brain disorders and the use of external picoTeslaTranscranial Magnetic Stimulation (pT-TMS) showed that, stimulation of the immune system was possible, depending on the proper function of the pineal gland (PG) and the melatonin hormone effect. A more detailed study of the underlying mechanisms is proposed, especially in the case that PG is calcified and melatonin secretion is partially prevented. A specifically designed electronic device can be used for the decalcification of the PG, or alternative as a hypothesis, oral intake of low doses of melatonin hormone could be given instead of using external pT-TMS.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate, that in case of PG dysfunction, external pT-TMS can be used, in order to enhance the immune system stimulation or as a hypothesis oral intake of low doses of melatonin hormone could be given against infectious agents.
